The particular character and the unique taste of "Delirium Tremens" result from the use of three different kinds of yeast. Its very original packing, which resembles cologne ceramics, and the colourful label contribute to its success.
In 1997, Stuart A. Kallen nominated Delirium Tremens as "best beer in the world". A gold medal during the "world beer championships" in Chicago (1998) confirmed that worldwide recognition.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAY 7, 2007
Pours a slightly hazed light golden with a dense, though quickly thinning white head. The nose is dry and herbal. Yeasty, lemony, straw. I really kind of enjoy this. This is nice and foamy in the mouth, with some better than I expected viscosity. A rather strong dry lemony tartness. Some rather significant grassy hay flavors, and some nice creaminess. The herbal nature seems to disappear a bit with warming, but early on, this kind of reminded me of a rather strong Orval. the finish is dry and fruity, with citrus, the aftertaste is bigger in the alcohol, with a pronounced Belgian funk and dare I say it, peppery Saaz like hops? A nice beer all around.

Skyview (5866) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Intereting ceramic 750ml bottle. Pours a yellow hazy brew with a very fizzy white head. Dissolves quicklly and leaves just barely a thin oily layer. Aroma is cirtus, yeast, dry pitted fruit, and some pie crust. Taste is highly carbonated, salty, and some tangy aftertaste. Interesting label with the pink elephants and alligators.

Cloudy light gold in appearance with some suspended particles topped by a thick rocky head. Wheat aroma and somewhat phenolic as well. Nice spicy yeast flavour as well as some black pepper, fruity and only some apparent alcohol.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2007
On tap at Isaac Newtons. Clear golden yellow pour with thin white head. Aroma of citrus fruits and vanilla. Interesting flavor of sweet malts, orange, banana, yeast and mild carbonation finish off an enjoyable brew. I could drink a few of these.

tagz (337) - Alabama, USA - APR 28, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2008 golden orange with white head. the blend of sour (citrus), light yeast, and soft carbonation complement the high alcohol content nicely. there is a hint of banana in there as well. very interesting flavors, crisp palate. well worth seeking out. had this again beside another belgian strong and tremens was the clear favorite. the crisp citrus edge, fruity yeast, and delicate, dry palate are distinct.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - APR 27, 2007
On tap. Aroma is of barbecue sauce. Very attractive beer with a fully lasting white head that left excellent lace. Flavor is heavy sweet and light bitters. Full palate with an oily soft texture. Could be used as cough syrup in a pinch. Maybe a bad batch or dirty glass, this was just nasty.
